Pierre Lacan's "Légitime Défense" depicts how a common man protects his family ?
Films with violence do not shock audiences unless they have something which can induce viewers to leave their seats as if they have been completely dominated by fear. A similar violent scene involving a small baby being thrown into water has been featured in 'final balance' /'Légitime Défense' which can be labeled a "responsible thriller".The welfare and well being of a family is at the heart of this film's narrative thread. Belgian actor Olivier Gourmet gives new dimensions to his villainous role. Although French actor Jean Paul Rouve gives a very restrained performance, he does not miss any opportunity to portray his part of a dedicated family man. He conveys that he would do anything in order to protect his father, mother and child from dangers. Lastly, a mention must also be made of French actor Claude Brasseur who shines in a small but important role. Watching him perform nicely, one learns that he has aged for sure but continues to carry considerable charm.
